This week Audacity began shooting interviews for a project we are developing with Broadway High School students. The working title is “Broadway High School Voices.”
With our program students, we developed an interview to kick off the project/to get the project started. We will continue to develop the program as we earn more trust and, as we learn more about what these amazing kids want to say.
The student in this clip had missed a great deal of school at a school that seems to have washed their hands of her; they provided no way for her to catch up with her peers. She found her way to Broadway where people care so very much and, she is thriving now.
“I cannot help but be inspired by the drive, commitment and perseverance these kids show on a daily basis, ” Audacity Founder, Louis Stone-Collonge says about working with Broadway Students.
The Audacity Performing Arts Project is super excited to announce that we have hired Khalia Davis as Director to support our productions at John Sinnott Elementary School in Milpitas.
Khalia with be fully responsible for the production and, will be assisted by Audacity Artistic Director, Samantha Pistoresi.
The addition of Khalia gives us much greater flexibility and, its our first step towards the growth we have been reaching for over the past two years. I am very excited and feel like Khalia’s presence breaths new energy and life into our little band of committed artists.
